“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Finally, a genealogy chart that makes sense

So I always wondered how this worked, the "removed" thing when describing the familial distance of cousins you barely know from out of town. Well, here's a helpful chart to pull out at the next Thanksgiving or reunion to suss it all out. Even more helpful would be a line designating for which cousins it's not taboo to pursue sex, though I guess that's dependent on regional preferences, laws, and general attractiveness.   ;-)

Click on the chart for a bigger look-see.

What about "kissing cousins"?

Disturbingly, I believe the term "kissing cousins" is probably derived from consanguineous relationships, most likely here in Alabama....heh heh heh.
